Sex & Nudity

  • On his first day at the station, Jack is told that a priest comes twice a year to hear confessions, so Jack goes to see him (the man is behind a curtain). We hear the man's voice asking Jack about women and whether he has impure thoughts. Jack replies that he does (adding "quite a bit"), with the voice telling him to cut back and then asking if Jack's a virgin. Jack nervously laughs and the voice asks if Jack thinks it's funny to fornicate with loose women. We then see that it's Lenny posing as a priest to give Jack a hard time on his first day. One of the other firemen then jokingly tells Jack to let him know when he finds those loose women.
  • After a night of drinking we see a woman waking up (covered by a sheet) and the man she presumably sleeped with and get's up and leaves. No nudity shown

Violence & Gore

  • Jack and others enter a huge building that's on fire and where it's noted that some sort of dust inside might cause explosions. Some of them start to cause the floor to collapse, with Jack trying to hold onto his rope but then falling down through the floor -- several stories -- until he lands quite hard in the debris below (he's knocked out).


  • At least 1 "f" word, 6 "s" words, 8 hells, 4 asses (2 used with "hole"), 1 crap, 1 damn, 4 uses of "Oh God," 3 of "G-damn," 2 of "Oh my God" and 1 use of "Swear to God." There is also an abuse of Jesus' name.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Mike appears to be intoxicated when Jack first arrives at the station as a rookie. Mike pours liquor for both and we then see that while he's fully dressed up top, he's in just his boxers down below (further indicating drunkenness).

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • As Jack leads the fire hose through a house, he encounters a literal flood of rats pouring down the steps (that squeal when he steps near or on some of them to get upstairs to fight the fire).
